My wife left school in 1958 and as we moved quite some distance away, Singapore, from the area shortly afterwards and far as I am aware, had no contact with it or any of her fellow in mates since, so was rather surprised to be contacted a few weeks ago and invited to a school re union.
The re union took place last week-end and what a shock/surprise :-)
I didn't go to the same school as my wife but was pretty well known around her village both when I was courting and when I was working there after leaving my school in Yeovil.
Without the name tags I would only have recognised one or two people but what did a great deal for my ego was that they all recognised me !!
Wendy had a fantastic time talking with and about all the girls she grew up with and how they had all gone different ways and did different things
Some were on their fourth marriage and some had worn one or two husbands out :-(
All had grey hair and had lost a bit of the figure but not half as bad as some of the men !
My goodness some of them couldn't see their toe caps let alone their 'important bits' even if they tried.
I must admit I saw a wide selection of walking sticks, zimmer frames, hearing aides and when some started comparing medication, between them they could have stocked up a large branch of Boots !!
The only reason I can think of the reason for the difference in health and body shapes of the men from myself was due to my length of Army service perhaps because I didn't start going down hill until my mid fourties after demob .
Blowing my own trumpet, you bet and I can't wait until the next re-union.
